Padilla -- In Memory of Gilly Padilla Fire that once burned bright is faded and burned away. The embers remain to light our path along the way. We get sad at your passing. God has a place for you and wants you now to rest. How sad it is your passing. You're remembered by so many of all the love you shared and all the care of sharing. -Vince Cordova
